Imagine yourself walking into a Verizon store (or someplace similar). As you look around, you see that displays are separated by device manufacturers: Samsung, Google, Apple, Verizon, Blackberry, HTC, LG, Microsoft, Motorola, and Kyocera. Then you see the banners on the wall featuring the different operating systems: Android, Apple iOS, and Microsoft. Finally, you notice the variety of hardware: smartphones, tablets, and smart watches. These are the devices that your company employees will be both personally and professionally. Without a way to connect the various devices and operating systems, you have no way to manage how these devices interact with your business network.
Whenever you allow a new device to enter your business network and connect to your company data, you're creating a security risk. However, people don't sit at a desk all day anymore, especially sales representatives. There's no way you can maintain the efficiency of your business functions while restricting the use of personal mobile devices. "Bring your own device" (BYOD) is a thing of the present and the future. Mobile Device Management systems are the solution to our IT security and management concerns.
With the support of a mobile device management system, you have the ability to connect all of your employee devices to your business network and securely provide them with the information needed to excel at their jobs.
Minimal Learning Curve
In many organizations, there is a language barrier between IT and sales. Technology isn't easy for everyone to pick up right away and that's understandable. Using a system that supports various types of devices and operating systems means that your employees save time that would have been spent on learning how to run new hardware or software.
Always At The Ready
These systems don't only connect the various members of your business, but they supply you with up-to-date information to advise business decisions. This allows store managers to be prepared for any changes in demand, be fully stocked for holiday rush times, and be primed to adjust to any customer demand. Knowing how stores are operating ensures that all systems are functioning properly and you've given every location its best chance to succeed. Even for the traveling sales teams, knowing that they have access to the data they need without any risk to data security can make a big difference in how they perform.
Information At Your Fingertips
Security is a common concern expressed when discussing company information on mobile devices. Fortunately, the leading mobility management solution gives you the ability to share files through platforms like Dropbox, Cisco, Office 365, Splunk, SkyHigh, and more. For your sales team, this means that whenever they travel, they're able to bring their own devices and access company files seamlessly and securely to share any presentations, data, or other necessary information with the customers. As a bonus, you can sleep easily knowing that even if devices are lost or stolen, your company data remains protected.
Help Whenever You Need It
With the ability of remote troubleshooting, the IT team of your business can solve tech problems for your sales team immediately, from anywhere. This means that your sales representatives no longer have to worry about unresolved technical difficulties, especially when working with a client.
Finding the right MDM solution can save your company time, money, and trouble with its ease of use, minimal learning curve, real-time troubleshooting, and guaranteed data security.
